Hi,

Today’s update brings a fix for misplaced submenus in the O-Menu and bookmark bar folders. This has been applied to all streams of the Opera browser.

Besides that, you’ll find fixes for the black border around the sidebar communicator on Linux and a high CPU usage issue on macOS.

As usual, the full changelog is available here.

    All right, first! But wait… what am I doing in the stable stream? …

  • Nekomajin43

    Menu fix, finally. Thanks!

  • ktxgio

    thanks for new release

  • MacOS is spelled macOS

  • Ravenno

    Dear team Opera, do you happen to have plans to increase the option of translating in the browser?

  • Hetai-Na

    Do opera only copies chromium code, or do contribute to it too?

  • Hetai-Na

    Can you update de dictionary list for Opera? For example, it doesn’t have Canadian English, which it should.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Dictionary? You mean the spell checker?

      Opera uses Hunspell for the spell chdcker so adding a new language may depend on Hunspell and not on Opera.

  • Hetai-Na

    I think you should add scroll for tabs when you have to much of them. Firefox and edge already work this way. In Chrome and Opera with you have too much tabs they may became indistinguishable.

  • Hetai-Na

    Another feature you should look into add is the ability to sync extensions. It’s been requested for years now. Any special reason for not add it?

  • Hetai-Na

    I use Privacy Badger and it block some elements. The blocked element show the message of a page unavailable, cut. In the case of elements blocked my extensions is it possible for you to replace the message for just an white screen or something like “Blocked by an extension”, or similar? The cut message is really ugly.

  • Hetai-Na

    When I receive an image through Messenger and click it on the sidebar, it is not show in real full screen. I suggest you to add the possibility to see images in real fullscreen. Thank you all.

  • Hans Hansen

    Google Drive is the only website I have problems with, when HWA is turned on. For example when I rename a file, I can see a strange repainting: https://goo.gl/ABZ4LV
    Working fine in Firefox. Win10x64 v1709, Intel HD 4000.

    • Hetai-Na

      It do not happens here. Everything is fine on Google Drive.

      • Hans Hansen

        You probably have a different GPU then.

        • Hetai-Na

          Nope, I have the same as you. https://imgur.com/a/i2IwQ

          • Hans Hansen

            Strange. But maybe it’s because I have a different driver version: https://abload.de/img/hd400026pr8.png
            Or maybe the GPU is not the problem, I don’t know. 😀

          • Hetai-Na

            Your driver is not updated, maybe the problem will be fixed if you update it. You can use the official tool to update. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html

          • Hans Hansen

            On the contrary. My driver is up-to-date. Yours is not. My driver is from 2017, yours from 2015. 😉

          • Hetai-Na

            Yeah, you are right. I got confused. Some laptop manufacturers customize their Intel componentes. You could try using the driver from your PC manufacturer’s website.

  • Hetai-Na

    This new translation to portuguese is just wrong. You should replace “Instantâneo” – which means instantaneous, or imediate, to “Captura de tela”. https://imgur.com/a/cMuFL

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Snapshot means ‘instantâneo’.

      • Hetai-Na

        Essa é uma tradução ao pé da letra, super literal, não usada de maneira igual entre as línguas. Ao pesquisar “Snapshot” no Google em imagens vc encontra várias imagens de câmeras e lentes, indicando seu significado. Já a mesma pesquisa com o termo “instantâneo” retorna um monte de imagem de miojo. Só um exemplo para mostrar como é estranha essa tradução literal.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          The term ‘snapshot’ isn’t related only to images although it may be the most common association made with it.

          And ‘captura de tela’ is an ‘instantâneo’. But OK, maybe ‘captura de tela’ would be a better translation in this case.

  • Dark Magician

    Still the same issue after some time. Site doesn’t matter.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      And what is the issue?

      • Dark Magician

        History icon in address bar instead of TLS lock.
        It actually displays the lock, and at random it changes.

    • Nekomajin43

      I can confirm this.

  • Hetai-Na

    Where is the option to show/hide Google Search on Speed Dial? It seems to be missing, can’t find. I reinstalled Opera, and didn’t find the option, so a enabled Opera Sync and now the (redundant) search bar is missing without the option to enable it again.

    Also, i found a new translation error to portuguese. “Busca” and “Pesquisa” are almost the same. Only “Pesquisa” should be used in this case. https://imgur.com/a/BCMll

    • Hans Hansen

      Can’t you find it here? https://abload.de/img/search_o48z1ans.png
      Tick “Search box”
      If you want to find it on the normal settings page, you have to activate the Power User Mode if I remember correctly:
      https://abload.de/img/powermoiou9c.png
      Instruction: http://www.skipser.com/p/2/p/enable-power-user-settings-in-opera.html

      • Hetai-Na

        Everything became visible when I enabled “advanced settings”. Thank you Hans!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I think ‘Busca’ would be better than “Pesquisa’ in this case.

      • Hetai-Na

        Pesquisa pode até ser mais acadêmico, mas é assim que normalmente se refere. “Vou pesquisar no Google”, “Pesquisa isso para mim na internet”. Buscar seria mais adequado ao recurso “find in page”, buscar na página. O próprio Google se refere ao recurso como pesquisa.

    • Ewa

      Thank you for pointing translation error, reported 🙂

  • nicks

    From yesterday flash on Opera not working… “plug is outdated” but I have the latest updates… On Chrome everything is fine. Any advice?

  • Could we have an option/flag for smooth scrolling with Battery saver on?

  • Hetai-Na

    I just found a bug in the snapshot tool. It is not possible to capture and image from a PDF fie. It gets black. I tried in the following PDF: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26813/eng/releasenotes_153345.4653.pdf

    Scrolling and writing in facebook is pretty jerky in this version.

  • De Oliveira, jr

    There’s a problem with my Opera 48: when I use menu and submenu (or clicking the right mouse button) they don’t show any caracters on white screen. If back screen is using other color the caracters seams transparent only on this color portion. The windows are present but I cannot read anything. Someone more?

    I’m using Xubuntu 14.04 and Opera 48.0.2685.39. Other browsers don’t have the same problem.

    i really wish you could get mobile facebook to work in the web panel every other site works but facebook sigh

      What version of macOS?

      • Jozka Jozin

        Version of macOS is 10.13

        • Ewa

          We couldn’t reproduce it, could you provide exact steps?

          • Jozka Jozin

            No. Can I send you any logs?

          • Jozka Jozin

            Opera crash only, when the app is in full screen mode.

  • Jörg

    Since the update to Opera 48 and macOS 10.13 clicking on links often does not work.
    I already removed my profile and reinstalled opera.

    • Ewa

      Sorry, we couldn’t reproduce it; could you provide more details?

      • Jörg

        Unfortunately not.
        I am not able to write a reproducible test-case.

  • jedy123

    One thing that’s been a problem for a number of years. When selecting the ‘Keep local data only until I quit my browser’ and or clearing browser data, when viewing ‘All cookies and site data’ in the settings, local cookies still remain and have to be removed manually. Is this a bug and if so can it be rectified? It’s the main issue I have with Opera at the moment. I’ve tested other browsers and they delete all cookies when using the above two methods. Please fix this.

    @ devs
    Will you continue to record the changes in the engine on Dev.Opera? The last post was released in august, for v47.

  • pufadtkavics

    Hi! I have an issue since the latest Win10 update (approximately a week
    ago), and this update didn’t help either. Gifs and videos do not play on
    instagram or facebook. I have had this issue before, but I was able to
    fix it with java or adobe updates, this time it doesn’t help. Why is it
    that this things function breaks all the time in Opera? Is there aything
    I can do to prevent this other than changing browser? This very same
    version on windows 8.1 has no problems handling gif or videos.

    • pufadtkavics

      All Adobe stuff reinstalled, opera reinstalled, still videos and gifs don’t play.

  • Kari Ikonen

    Screen capture saving still having corrupted filenames.

    When trying to save screenshot filename is like

    Opera Nᅢᄂyttᅢᄊkuva_2017-10-21_104847_blogs.opera.com.png”

    “ᅢᄂ” and “ᅢᄊ” are certainly not valid.

    Strange bug on Win7 32 bit in the latest stable:

    I have a local HTML file opened in the browser. The left side of the address bar shows the local file badge, as expected. Then after a few minutes, without any interaction from me, the badge changes to the Google favicon, possibly associated with the search engine.

    This is not the first strange bug like this, regarding the badge in the address bar. Can anyone confirm similar behaviour?

    • Hans Hansen

      I tried to reproduce it, but I cannot confirm this behaviour on Win10x64.

      • Nekomajin43

        I can not reproduce this particular behaviour myself. I just stared at the page, and saw it happen. But I experienced similar bugs with other (web)pages. Someone else even reported one, but I can not find the comment.

        • Hans Hansen

          You probably mean this comment for example: http://disq.us/p/1mvp46t

          • Nekomajin43

            Yep, this is it.

          • Hans Hansen

            @Nekomajin43:disqus I have to modify my previous statement. I can CONFIRM this bug now: https://goo.gl/PnMoHR 😀
            But I don’t know how to reproduce it either. 😛 I did not use Google Search before visiting this page.
            But I noticed one thing: When I switch to another tab and then back to the buggy tab, everything is normal again.

          • Nekomajin43

            I noticed that too.

            How can I access this system?
            “Opera’s bug-tracking system is available to Opera employees and business partners working on customer projects”
            Did I miss anything?

          • Vux777

            no, you didn’t miss anything 🙂
            Kornelia posted a link to bug report, forgetting that users can’t access it

    • Nekomajin43

      It just happened again on an online website. The VPN and HTTPS badge disappeared, and the google search logo showed up instead.

    • Bob

      If you refresh the page at this point, does it reload the original page, or does it load Google search results? Because I had an intermittent issue like that that made me switch my dev work to a different browser. This is on OSX though, with hosted sites, but could be related?

      • Nekomajin43

        It reloads the same site.

  • Yehor

    When will it be possible to use custom system colors in the titlebar, like in previous versions?
